I am so excited right now! Tonight I get to go to my first women’s retreat as an adult! I can remember asking Shauna once in prison if there were “youth rally’s” for adults. Her response was “Yes, every time we go to church.” And she was right. Church for an adult that loves Jesus is just like a youth retreat or worship service for young people. We find that joy and spiritual high each and every time we gather together to worship.
So to get to spend the whole weekend worshiping with tons of other ladies has me dancing in my seat! And to top that off… I get to have my first slumber party with both my sisters!! (And Tiffany too, who played the role of the 3rd sister last year at the retreat and roomed with my sisters in my place.) But not this year!! I’M BACK!!
It excites me when I think of all we’ve been through over the years. The obstacles we have overcome, and are still overcoming in our family. There have been a lot! But “We have overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony!” (Rev. 12:11) And we are moving forward!
There is such a great weekend in store for us! I can’t wait… I almost want to just skip work today and go hang out at the Omni hotel and wait for the fun to start!!
